Norton V4RR is expected to launch in India in December 2022 in the expected price range of ₹ 80,00,000 to ₹ 90,00,000. Currently available bikes which are similar to V4RR are Suzuki Hayabusa, Suzuki Katana & Ducati Panigale V4.
The V4RR is a fully-faired supersport motorcycle built by the British-based manufacturer, Norton. It is based on the SG5 Isle of Man TT race bike and is built at the Donington Hall factory in England.
The bike is built around an aluminium twin-tube chassis with a single-sided swingarm exposing the rear wheel. To further reduce the weight of the motorcycle, Norton has equipped the bike with an 18-litre carbon-fibre fuel tank. The V4RR also gets an optional titanium racing exhaust that reduces weight by eight kilograms. Besides, it comes with a set of carbon fibre wheels.
Powering the V4RR is a 1200c, 72-degree V4 engine that produces 200bhp and 130Nm of torque via a six-speed transmission and two-way quickshifter. The titanium exhaust further bumps up the power by 10bhp. The bike’s electronic package includes a six-axis IMU, traction control system, launch control, anti-wheelie system, and three riding modes- road, sport and pro-race, along with a cruise control system.
It rides on Ohlins NIX30 front forks and a TTXGP monoshock at the rear. Braking power is provided by Brembo with twin 330mm discs up front and a 245mm single-disc at the rear.
Expected to be priced between Rs 80 lakhs to Rs 90 lakhs, the bike does not have any direct competition in the Indian market.
